IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — A University of Iowa student faces a drug charge after he allegedly received a mail package of brownies made with marijuana.

Authorities say staff at one of the school's residence halls intercepted a package in early April intended for 19-year-old Christian Hernandez. A criminal complaint says the package smelled of marijuana.

The package was turned over to the Johnson County Drug Task Force. Authorities say Hernandez told them he received a previous package with marijuana brownies and distributed them to friends.

Hernandez was booked Monday night at the county jail and released Tuesday morning. He has been charged with a felony controlled substance violation with the intent to distribute.

A phone number listed for Hernandez in the UI phone directory was not in service.
